The newest member of the Jagjaguwar label family is Montreal's The Besnard Lakes. This six-piece group is centered around the husband and wife team of Jack Lasek and Olga Goreas. Their upcoming album, The Besnard Lakes Are The Dark Horse, was recorded at Lasek's own studio, at which bands such as Wolf Parade, Islands and Sunset Rubdown have also set up shop in the past.
To preview their Beach Boys meets Pink Floyd meets The Mamas And The Papas sound, you can listen to the new track "Disaster" on their MySpace page. That will have to tide you over for a few months, as the new album doesn't hit stores until February 20, 2007.
